  • As a little folkband of 6 women, we work on peaces that are deep folk, from Bretagne, Ireland, german songs out of Renaissance -Madrigale, but I have filmed one first take of our new peace last wednesday, it is a folk song with elements of renaissance as the polyphne voices, we have to work on it but we decided to do.

    • Stefanie Mosburger-Dalz Thank you SO much for sharing these videos, Stefanie! They are fun, playful, and beautiful! Music needs to fill us with joy and love, and that is exactly what I was filled with while I was listening to them. Not to mention that "If My Complaints" is such a wonderful song, one of the best in the English language ever.

      Stefanie Mosburger-Dalz That is so beautiful, Stephanie. Where is Marica from? I am so envious of your ability to play (cello in this case) and sing with a group. It is such a joy to hear and see.

    • ferran You are doing a great job! I have had a student lute for almost a year-and-a-half now, but I cannot play like this (I wish I could). I tried cutting my nails off, thinking it would improve my sound, but it made it much worse. Maybe I didn't stick with it for long enough, but it took all the joy out of my playing, both lute and guitar. I also tried playing with "thumb under" technique, but it is just so awkward. Again, maybe I just need more patience, but I have reverted back to playing lute with my guitar right hand technique.

      Do you have a teacher or are you doing it on your own?

      ferran Very nice, Ferran! That's a beautiful looking (and sounding) lute you have. Six courses in E is unusual these days, but probably makes good sense, especially for guitarists! (And if I'm not mistaken, Paul Kieffer has been using one lately.) May I ask what the scale length is? Thanks!

      ferran That was great, Farran. Your lute has such a sweet, delicate sound. It has been a long time since I had heard any Attaingnant. Thanks.
